    There are so many home printers of different models are available from Hp, Brother, canon, Epson,    You can visit the manufacturer website or go to a near by store and get a printer designed for home purpose. 

    You can also go to windows + r - type control printers  on run 
    click on add printer and install the printer 


    go to canon website - download and install the printer driver of Canon Pixma MG2950

    You shouldn't need a new printer unless there is a problem with the printer itself. The Canons can be problematic with some systems, but it's usually the Chromebooks they have issues with. Open Device Manager with the printer disconnected, then plug the printer in using USB and see what changes. Post a screen shot of the change...
